I expected it to be a tough match, things are going well and less well in a game and I I’m glad that I managed to stay in the match, to continue to fight as well as I can and not to be affected by the fluctuations of the score. I feel good, I like how I play and I hope to do the same in the following matches.
I was not afraid to travel to this period, we avoided as much as we could. Such are the conditions now, we are not the only ones traveling with children to tournaments. We think about protecting ourselves as much as we can. For now, everything is fine, Sofia and I are fine
